Church Cross home is Holy Grail if you’re in search of charm, style and character

Church Cross home is Holy Grail if you’re in search of charm, style and character

The €350,000 price tag includes a site of three acres and traditional outhouses.

By Emma Connolly 

A RENOVATED farmhouse that oozes charm and character located close to Skibbereen, is new to the market this week. 

The stylish three-bedroom, two-bathroom farmhouse is at Reenmurragh, Church Cross, Skibbereen and for its price tag of €350,000, it packs quite the punch. 

The vibe, inside and out, is one of idyllic rural living a la Greenacres style. Just perusing the brochure alone will have you reaching for your Barbour jacket and Hunter wellies!

A long driveway leads to the property which is surrounded by rolling hills and enjoys a certain seclusion while also having the advantage of being close to a town centre. 

Situated on a 3.6 acre site, the sale includes traditional stone outbuildings which can be used for a variety of purposes, depending on the new owner’s needs.

There’s also plenty of space for pursuits like vegetable growing, keeping hens or even a pony or two  – or the option is also there to let nature get on with things itself. 

Back inside, the finish is to a very high standard while still remaining true to its ‘country cottage’-type character. 

A gas fired Aga range is what you’d expect and yes, there is one, and there are plenty of other standout features, including exposed beams, black and white check tiles, a Belfast sink and distinctly charming utility room (with a laundry maid). 

The main bathroom also has a slightly Victorian vibe and the bath itself enjoys views of the panoramic countryside. 

Distant coastal views are also a feature of some rooms. 

The farmhouse has gas fired central heating, broadband and well water.
